My very own Harry Potter 7 Review *no spoilers!*
Ah, finally I've got my hands on the book!
I had my sister buy the book from Best Eastern yesterday morning. Luckily, and thankfully, she had the job well done. :)
The queue at Best Eastern, The Mall yesterday morning wasn't really that long, that is, when compared to those at other countries.
I supposed they're all buying the Harry Potter Book 7. Couldn't be buying another book right? It'd look weird. Can't imagine it.
Most of the customers yesterday morning was mainly comprised of teenage students who were on their way to school. Well, if you looked at the picture, there were some "aunties" as well.
After all, I don't think it's really necessary to go there so early just to ensure you get your copy. I mean, look at the queue in Brunei. There's not much people!
Not even more than the number of students in a freaking classroom!
In other countries, you'll see hundreds of customers flocking into any nearest bookstore, snatching, grabbing, buying, stealing or in any other methods to get their hands on the book.
In this type of crowd, you would not even be aware if any perverted old man came and simply touch or molest you. Luckily in Brunei, no perverted old man would wake up so early in the morning and squeeze into a crowd queuing to buy Harry Potter books. There's not even a crowd for them to squeeze in even if they wanted to.
Right, so after my sister bought the book, she phoned me right away and told me the price is far more expensive that the $32 I gave her. It's far worse!
Best Eastern sells the book for $49.95! What's worse is that my sister told me the news RIGHT after she bought it. Really feel like long-piak.
What breaks my heart even more is that most of the shops in the country were selling at $36 - $38. Not more than $40 I guess.
And yet, the only advantage of buying from Best Eastern is that you get this bag for free.
Backpack, costs more than $10.
As far as I've observed the bag, I find it quite durable. Not those one-layer type. But I still don't think they deserve a price more than two-digits.
What I hate about the bag is the ropes. Very out-of-style.
Buying the book was surely a satisfaction, but having it in a bad condition is the last thing you'll ever hope for.
Apparently, a few pages of the book that I have was like this!
Should be a little "error" from the factory? Ruined my book!
If only I could exchange for another copy! But never mind..
Maybe it's just my fate to have the book in this condition... ;( *emo*
